Hello all
I am trying to create a formula to imitate the following filter login in another sheet
i am trying to pull a single figure via a countifs function from 5 different columns
if any one of the 5 columns have a yes, that would count as 1
can anyone advise how i can pull this please ?
@Paul Newcome @Genevieve P. your input would always be appreciative as well

I would suggest a helper column on the source sheet that will output a 1 in any row containing "Yes" in at least one of those columns and then use a SUM function on the separate sheet to get the total from the helper column.
=IF(OR([Column1]@row = "Yes", [Column2]@row = "Yes", ........................), 1)
=SUM({Source Sheet Helper Column})
